A gallant feat.--A day or so since, a small squad of privates got leave of absence to see their families in Galloway County, some fifty miles from Camp General Smith. Their names are James Henderson, C. D. Gray, E. T. Manard, J. W. Parker, Henry Henderson, and T. B. Scully. They went out home, near the Tennessee line. When it was rumored they were in the neighborhood, Capt. Bourland, who had made up a regular cavalry company, and had been sworn into the Confederate service, with nine of his men, started to capture Col. Williams' men; but these brave boys being on the alert, awaited until they arrived at Henderson's house, when they surrounded the rebels and captured the whole squad, nine, the Captain included, but the Captain afterwards made his escape in the bushes. The names of those men are Capt. J. N. Bourland, James Albrittain, John Linn, Josiah Ballance, J. R. McKnight, Wm. M. Duncan, J. M. Taylor, Gilbert Hart and, Arch. Bogard. All honor to these brave boys. The re

ers themselves were particularly joyed, and seemed to regard their capture as a great blessing. We would conclude by mentioning the heroic conduct of Private James Henderson, Company A, First Louisiana. This brave fellow had undergone the severe fiery ordeal with his regiment in the morning, and when it was ordered to fall back he voluntarily moved to the front to assist the wounded, as there were neither surgeon nor stretcher bearers with his regiment. Henderson brought off Col. Shivers from the field on his back, returned and recovered the same officer's sword and other equipments, and whenever finding a wounded man sufficiently strong to be removed wounded men from under the enemy's guns! We always delight to record the deeds of privates, but can any words of our add to the honor of such a brave fellow as Henderson? There are, doubtless, many who did as well, in some capacity or other, but we regret that none will advise us of their names and deeds. In this connection
